Promote your business through charities

December 20, 2011 by  

More and more people are starting their own businesses these days; many of them are based in the home. It is often difficult to promote a home-based business where you do not have face-to-face contact with a lot of people. You can join the local Chamber of Commerce to get your name out there and allow you to meet your fellow business owners. You can arrange with your local Stroudsburg brochure printers to create a booklet about your business and distribute it locally. You can also help get your company name out there by volunteering with local charities.

Volunteering gets you out amongst people and gives you an opportunity to promote your company as one that cares about the community. While the main reason to volunteer with a charity is to help those who need it, you can also use it as a way to educate the public about what your businesses can do for them.

There are several ways for a business to contribute to a charity; you can help raise funds by using your network of peers to get the word out, you can donate goods and services to the charity, you can host special events to raise money for the charity or you can donate money directly. Charities will be very grateful and will make a point of mentioning your contributions to the press or to those who are helped thanks to your kindness.

There are many charities in Stroudsburg that need your help including the Pocono Arts Council, Habitat for Humanity, the Hope for Hannah dog rescue, the Monroe County Meals on Wheels and Support Services for Senior’s. Choose the type of cause that is closest to your heart, they will appreciate your help.
